Thanks for all the comments
Any comments on ease of unbolting of headers?
Did any shear off??

12mm deep well socket.

I've removed tons of K exhausts and never had any of the header flange bolts shear.

Worst case the nut is stuck and it unscrews the bolt into the head. Not a big deal.

You might want too consider putting in fresh header gaskets when you reinstall.

+1 on the frozen nuts. They're copper and somehow seize to the steel bolt.
Heat them to a pretty glowing red color (mapp gas torch does a nice job) and they'll come right off and leave the stud in the head.
BMW stealer had new nuts in stock, if that tells you anything

I just squirted mine with penetrant, and they came right off with everything cool. I did replace the 4 gaskets and all 8 nuts with the new copper ones. I needed a ratcheting wrench for one of them sockets got the rest.

I have a whole, 'uncracked' exhaust in excellent condition, with new copper rings, o2 sensor for sale on on ebay...if your interested let me know.

I welded the exhaust on my bike...2-3 times? it kept cracking, and it was a going to be a temp. fix, so I bought this exhaust. I never used it, and just recently sold the K1100...so have some parts for sale.

About welding, do it on the bike unless you have a jig to to 'hold' header pipes etc. I had to heat and bend a pipe in order to even get it to fit back on bike, and it wasn't easy.

Thanks again.
Got 2nd hand unit from Motorworks today.
125 + studs, gaskets and rubber bits.
As against 600 for Remus.

I'm in Ireland 552255, so Nebraska a bit far to ship Smile
But thanks anyway.

The heat shield on my own is better than the s. hand.
Is it possible/easy to change it??

It's mounted on the lower mid left transmission bolt. Not too hard to get to when you have the exhaust off.

Apologies - I meant the chrome cover on the muffler.(can/silencer Smile )
It seems to be held on by pop rivets.
Can't have people thinking I did the damage Very Happy
